We believe that everyone has the right to find themselves on the Internet and protect their privacy and image. Using the latest technologies, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, we help people find their pictures on the Internet and defend themselves against scammers, identity thieves, or illegal usage of their image. That is why we have created PimEyes - a multi-purpose tool allowing people to track down their faces on the Internet, reclaim image rights, and monitor their online presence.
We truly believe that it is necessary to democratize facial recognition technology. It should not only be reserved for corporations or governments. We’re proud to say that we have helped thousands of ordinary people in finding their illegally used photos and protecting their privacy.
About the brand
PimEyes is a face recognition search engine that has been created to be available to everyone. The technology that integrates the facial recognition mechanism with a search engine was designed in 2017 by a Polish startup. In 2020 the brand was bought by the investors from Face Recognition Solutions Ltd. and it is now being developed as an advanced self-monitoring, self-protection, and self-image management tool.
Why do we charge people for opening the results?
You might be aware that if an online service is for free, the company standing behind it sells its users’ data. For us, however, our user’s anonymity is a top priority, so instead of selling their data, we charge them for the possibility to access the sources of their results: website addresses containing photos of them and links to source images. However, we allow everyone to perform a search and display the results with no need to pay. Free users just can’t access the results’ sources.
Why do we allow searching only for the user’s own face?
We want our service to be used in a manner that does not affect the rights of third parties (personal rights, copyrights) and generally applicable principles of international law. That is why in our search results there are website addresses, not personal data (because the users know who they are). This is also one of the reasons why we don’t search social media.
How we operate
Public Information Only
We search only the open web and sites that allow crawling their data. That means we do not search social media, private accounts, or look for any information that is available only for registered users.
We are a self-investigative tool that allows people to search for publicly available information about themselves. PimEyes is not intended for the surveillance of others and is not designed for that purpose.
We help people find and identify crimes directed against them like catfishing, nonconsensual pornography, or identity thefts. We also give our users the tools to take action against their abusers.
Not Controlling Them
We provide links to external websites, however, we are not responsible for the content presented on them. By delivering links in the search results we do not endorse these external websites or their practices.
